I spent hundreds of dollars on Rock Band hardware. I want to use my instruments wherever possible AND impossible.

Posted by Korne

Looks kinda cool... but really, 2 buttons?

This should be another continuation of Frequency/Amplitude/Rock Band Unplugged.

I was conned into watching this video with false advertisement of John Drake!

John Drake's Tweet (Seriously, look it up!):

Fuck You Brad Shoemaker!

John Drake is real cool I was hoping to see him not giving a shit while also sorta, kinda wanting you to buy this but not committing to anything since he's probably on 2 hours of sleep and seventeen cups of coffee.

@cbirdsong: Yeah, I totally get that. I guess I just really wanted a sequel to Amplitude, not just another way to play Rock Band.

Posted by goatsoap

it looks kind of like frequency for the ps2 with all of that track switching

Posted by InsidiousTuna

There's a movie marquee on the left side of the track advertising Eric Pope in 'Pope On A Pope'. I'd watch that.

No instruments defeats the entire reason I like Rock Band and Guitar Hero games to begin with, so no interest in this.

When is the board game coming out?

Posted by Polaris

Haha, Drake's response on Twitter to Brad is priceless.

Posted by MisterMouse

was hoping for more drake in that video.

How am I supposed to know how authentic this game is? D:

Bring the fun of a band...into your hands. Sounds dirty.

Wow, tap buttons randomly while listening to classic and contemporary music.... "no instruments required" like that is a good thing? Marketing makes ultra :(

Posted by Calavero

So Rock Band Unplugged on consoles? Yes please.

Posted by nickux

Dig deeper into John Drake

Drizzle!

@LooseChange You're Amplitude.
Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Man, this erection just will not go away.
 
Although, I do agree with the people saying there should probably be a third button in there.

Posted by marbleCmoney

No John Drake? I was lied to.

heads-up for those NOT following the Harmonix twitter over at @Harmonix: The 83 songs from the Rock Band 3 disc will NOT be playable in Blitz at launch (even if you have the disc), and will not be playable until Harmonix gives an export option for the game. No Freebird or Bohemian Rhapsody on this quite yet.

RBN songs, however, are playable, which means your chiptune/techno/Chaotrope songs can be played in Blitz.

If you want to use instruments, there are literally 6 other Rock Band games you can play, and you can just look at this as a DLC pack.

@kitsunezeta: I'm going to guess that all comes down to different licensing for on-disc and downloadable tracks. They should be able to work that out relatively quick.

@Korne: Who says it can't lead to that? Or hell this could end up being their spiritual successor.

Posted by TeejIV

Aw, I was kinda hoping it'd be more like Amplitude, with the whole "laying in the tracks" mechanic. I'm not as psyched as I was previously :-(

Posted by Halberdierv2

audiosurf much?

Posted by Radar

The exclusion of plastic instruments puts this to a day-one buy for me.

Posted by MrHammeh

If they were going for VH1's pop up video look on that trailer they nail'd it. Kudos. ;)

Posted by NicksCorner

Need more info, this looks just like four lanes of Audiosurf.

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

Amplitude is back!

Posted by MooseyMcMan

I feel like I was lied to with that image for the video on the front page.

Posted by dropabombonit

I will definitely be getting this, I was a huge fan of rock band unplugged and this looks just like that

You and me both.

Go go Harmonix!

I have to say I don't understand at all how this is played based on this video.

No kidding.

Posted by McDunkin

This is like one of those YouTube videos with cleavage in the thumbnail and then there is none of it to be seen in the actual video. Where is the John Drake!?!?!?

Posted by RichieJohn

I want this so much! I've always thought there should be a controller mode in the Rock Band games.

Posted by TheMartino

Only 2 buttons per track?

Posted by Grilledcheez

This looks confusing, but I'm buying it anyway.

Posted by EricNStuff

Looks like a shitty version of Amplitude.

Posted by HistoryInRust

I don't get it.
